Umpqua Oats! Food Prep Ideas Using Umpqua Oatmeal!

    Happy Sunday friends! 
Sunday is the day I like to get my calendar up to date and my food prepping for the week done! It's a huge help in making marathon training and feeding my family/myself with proper nutrition! 
First off!  Getting my workouts up to date in my calendar! If I don't make a plan ahead of time, it's easy to get busy doing other things! Then my workouts get easy to skip! It only takes a few minutes a week to write in my workouts around my daily responsibilities! "Fail to plan, plan to fail" 

This weekend I made Umpqua Oat, grab-n-go cups!  Umpqua Oats are a great way to start your day, a great snack, and a great way to fuel a workout!  I always keep Umpqua Oats in my pantry!  My favorite way to eat them, is in a grab-n-go cup!  You can buy microwavable cups with "heat resistant lids" pretty cheap at Cash-n-Carry. I picked up Umpqua Oatmeal in bulk at Costco and also freeze dried fruit (no sugar added) and raw nuts, seeds and spices at a few other stores!  I came up with some recipes with the things I like. I will post my favorites in this blog but feel free to make up your own mixes.  It's easy and fun!

If you don't have time to run around and shop for these items and the extra time to put them together, simply go pick up already assembled grab-n-go Umpqua Oat cups.  They have cases for sale at Cash-n-Carry. They are also sold individually at most major grocery stores, Safeway/Wal-Mart/Etc. (I live in Oregon). They make a large variety of flavors, from "sweet" to "no added sugar mixes."

You can also place a online order if you don't have time to shop or don't have Umpqua Oats in your neck of the woods!
